The gods did not abandon us at ancient times and resurface only a decade ago for reconstructionalists. People have had contact with the gods between those times. Those people wrote poetry, myths and accounts of those gods. I completely respect the choice of recons to choose to discard most of what happened in between. Most of them respect my choice not to disregard those materials. I do reject dishonesty. Cons who said that material was ancient that was not, for example. However, when the mystic is honest that this is recently copied down folklore, or recently received transmissions from the gods. I choose if I trust them, and if I trust them, if I want to incorporate their material into my work.
